accidents. and with the families, and it has been a very safe environment and drop off and pick up. and i also want to say that my sons have enjoyed it immensely and i don't think that they would have ever gotten an education like this anywhere else in the city thank you. >> hi, i am another mom, and i have two sons that graduated from there and i have three quick points and i know that the opposition had two really strong concerns and one is that it is an urban trafficky area. i am not sure where we should put preschools if we are not going to put them in the trafficky area in san francisco we would all have to move out of san francisco to achieve that really. my son goes to a public elementary school on 14th street and just take a look at that school unloading with 375 students. and it looks like beirut compared to what they have to deal with. number two the everybody was concerning about the noise and i could find it concerning and offensive that the neighbors are comparing the children's invoiceses to a vacuum cleaner, these problems are visible especially with the way of the potash's
". [applause] >> when it came to energy, natural resources and the environment reagan knew exactly what he wanted to do. of course he had been governor of california and like the other ten western states california is a federal lands state. the government jones a third of the nation, most of that in the american west and california like colorado, half of it was owned by the federal government so ronald reagan as governor of california, not just when it was sovereign but also when it was a land owner in many cases of bad neighbor. so he had to have experience, he knew the agency, the park service, the fish and wildlife service and the forest service and the department of agriculture and the bureau reclamation, he had experience with those agencies firsthand and he brought that knowledge with him in the years ahead. something phenomenal about reagan was he had a photographic memory and that is not just from bill clarke and george shultz, but the famous reagan biographer who points that out, one of the reasons why reagan once he had experience with an issue brought that experience with him in
, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults willin
and that tap water, unlike bottled water, is also good for our pocket books and the environment as well. and the public utilities commission, the puc, has worked along with the department of public health to educate residents to drink as much tap water as possible. i think [speaker not understood] and different efforts at the community level have been really beneficial, but we absolutely need to increase the ability of people to use their own refillable water bottles. and unlike bottled water, hetch hetchy tap water costs less than a half a penny per gallon. so, it's almost like costless in some ways. it's quality tested over 100,000 times a year and it's highly regulated by the environmental protection agency or the epa. i think the fear of drinking tap water often has been caused by slick and really misleading campaigns by the bottled water companies and over the years there is a certain fear. but i think the countering with a strong public education program, community education, has been critical. and many of you know that my work to work with christina and others within the departme

. so one of the things that many of us here understand that the environment or what we call the climate influences outcomes but often times in public schools where decisions are made, climate and educational mandates are perceived as two opposite ends of the continuum, like when i have time and i've achieved my test scores and we've got everything buttoned up, then we'll get to the klie mallet. we've heard it from speaker after speaker, that conditions set the stage for children to leeb lean in and achieve. the good news is we can move bullying out of the front page not with more dollars but with more changes in our attitudes and our interactions. if more teachers perceive themselves to be call friendly and know the names of boys and girls in their buildings, part of it is reeducation that climate and environment and changing social norms is not secondary, it's primary and when we all embrace that then we'll begin to see the changes in the policies and the practices and we'll begin to get the results we want. we need to advocate for improving the social climates of our public school

classroom, every school environment should be a safe environment where everyone is welcomed regardless of who you are, regardless of your ethnic background, sexual orientation or cultural background and we don't couple that with behaviors that kids will display. and the other thing in terms of context that i want to make sure is clear and i didn't am happy you're here and we are fighting a battle against pop culture and the messages they receive on tv, logging on to the facebook page, logging on to all of the social media that is out there, think how many times in pop culture they refer to someone as "their little b, or little n" and that's just the way we greet each other and for someone that entered school only speaking spanish and you think about the language issues and in spanish i can tell you a whole bunch of terms that people use to great each other that are so racist, homo phobic and have a length and accepted as accepted and we need to work together and we're dealing with a culture we are trying to shift and in san francisco we are proud of the work around the issue of toler
